There are two ways to create something new.
First, like growing trees.
We start with nothing, then a shoot becomes a stem, then a trunk. Branches sprout from the trunk, then branches from those branches, then leaves, and fruit.
Adding a little at a time, until we’re done.
The second begins with everything.
Then, like a glacier moving down through the mountains, we carve away, forging a beautiful path and discarding everything unwanted.
Subtracting a little at a time, until we’re done.
Which do you do most – grow trees or ride glaciers?
